Will She End up Ever Becoming a Christian?


I think the Alice series is an amazing series; it is one of my favorite series. I have read the whole series twice and I’ve just begun my third time reading them. I just finished reading your latest book “Intensely Alice” and I read it so fast.  When I got to the end I was saddened that there wasn’t more.  You are an amazing author; you bring me to a whole new world.  This book was really special to me because last November I had a friend that died.  He was only 15 (and so am I) and it really affected me and so many other people.  I could really relate to Alice and what she was going through.  I asked those same questions she did when my friend died.  I’ve been reading all the questions on the blog about people asking why ——– died ………  and I would like to say that I understand why you chose that character.  Sometimes it’s the people you would least expect to die and they make such a big impact on people after they die.   

 Also, I like that Alice is questioning her faith.  I’ve always wondered if she’ll end up ever becoming a Christian.  Was her mom a Christian?  Are Sylvia and Ben?  What about Patrick?  I have never quite figured it out.  Lastly, I was wondering how many more books you are going to write and if you are writing more, when the next one comes out.  I really hope you continue to write them for a long time because I know that I have learned so much from them and I don’t want you to stop writing them.  They make a huge impact on all the people that read them.  I wish you would write them until she gets married (hopefully to Patrick J ).  Haha.  Anyways, thank you for writing them and thank you for taking the time to read mine and other peoples emails and answer them!  Sorry this was so long!

Alice’s faith is such a personal matter that I think she sums it up best when she tells her father how she feels about religion.   The very last book in the series, that will come out in 2013 will, I think, answer all your questions about what happens to Alice after college.
